I worked in scientific research myself and can tell you some people care much more about securing the next grant than the truth. Not everyone of course, there are many scientists that take the scientific method seriously, but there is a reproducibility crisis for many studies, especially in psychology.

There is not much funding for repeat studies, or studies that disprove other studies. Everyone wants the new breakthrough study.

You have a vague, free-floating feeling of paranoia, especially when you hear the word event? That is normal, and just the way they want you to feel. I figure the events are spaced about a month apart on average, and the perpetrator is always either dead afterward or is unavailable for any sort of interview at all—even in print. Seems like a regular pattern.

So, everybody already got the call then?

I'm not too familiar with German but as far as I can tell it's not similar to Hungarian at all. Hungarian is hard to classify. It really is sort of the odd language out.

I had to take French and Latin in middle school but I remember very little of either.

As an Iranian I think you're either one dumb ass MF or just an Zionist troll. No Iranian would ever ask for an externally forced regime change to occur in Iran. Ever.

As long as you can get off this pendulum of US controlled leaders on one side (1954-1979) and hyper-religious domestic leaders on the other side (1979-present) I would support it too. The only thing is that I'm pretty sure it's going to end up US controlled if there's a regime change, there's just too much pressure from the outside trying to control things. Do you agree?

Clinton, Clapper, and Lerner are safe from the law because they are part of the Deep State.

Truth-tellers like Alex Jones, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Roosh, and Cody Wilson, however, are in danger because they are a threat to the elites.

My brother was a manufacturing engineer for John Deere for about 5 years.

He would describe the serious quality issues that they had, and how they often shipped product that had defects of functional flaws. Also, in his opinion many of the aftermarket components were much better quality than John Deere's OEM.

This article does not surprise me at all.

One wonders if debt, technology, offshoring jobs, punishing hard work with taxes and regulations, rewarding laziness with welfare, and allowing millions of 3rd world immigrants to flood the country are the reasons there is weak wage growth.
